The Safe Food for Canadians Act will strengthen and streamline legislative authorities across all food in Canada, whether it is imported or prepared domestically. This will make food safer for Canadians families and increase trade opportunities for Canadian businesses. It will come into force when new regulations are adopted.

There are a number of initiatives and policy changes under the Government's broad action plan to modernize food safety. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) would like your feedback on its Enhancing Risk Analysis: A more systematic and consistent approach.

The CFIA currently uses risk analysis in its decision making. The document describes the proposal to enhance the application of risk analysis in guiding the CFIA's regulatory oversight activities to protect food safety, consumer protection and human, plant and animal health.
